I installed Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 onto a Microsoft Server 2012 but unable to get to the management console.
When I use, https://<servernameFQDN>/ecp
it fails with
HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found
The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.
Detailed Error Information:
Module IIS Web Core

If I attempt to go to https://<servernameFQDN:444>/ecp I get to the login screen, as I should. But when I login, I'm taken to Outlook Web App.

Hi,

Please open IIS Manager, go to Sites, verify paths are correct for Exchange Site and virtual directories.

What else have you done other than install Exchange? Which version of Exchange 2013 did you install (so which CU?).
The error is usually a problem with IIS configuration, as already pointed out. Proxy servers can also cause problems if you are using one of those.
If you didn't install CU6, then I would start by installing that and see if that resolves the issue.

Simon.

Running a test within the IIS 7, I get the following error:

Authorization   Cannot verify access to path (C:\interpub\wwwroot)

The server is configured to use pass-through authentication with a built-in account to access the specified physical path. However, IIS Manager cannot verify whether the built-in account has access. Make sure that the application pool identity has Read access to the physical path. If this server is joined to a domain, and the application pool identity is NetworkService or LocalSystem, verify that <domain>\<computer_name>$ has Read access to the physical path. Then test these settings again.

I am not sure that I understand this error.

Also, Simon, are you saying that I need to reinstall another version of Exchange?

I just got a simple solution from 'Stackoverflow.com'. I tried "Connect As" and the username and password (Admin account),  (IIS is running on this machine), I tested the connection and it works now.
